According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media Ike Abonyi, Secondus said that the security problems are overwhelming and the government ought not to isolate itself from the people.

“You cannot isolate the people you govern and expect to get the necessary cooperation and support needed to tackle issues like security.

“That’s why they must try to carry the state governors along if they hope to decisively tackle the security challenges.”

The National Chairman praised the people of Rivers state for standing up in Defence of democracy pointing out that the supreme sacrifice of deaths and other stress they were subjected to during the election cannot be in vain.
